The Utah National Guard Recruiting Ribbon honors Utah National Guard members who demonstrate excellence in recruiting by earning ten points. Securing a new enlistment earns four points and securing a prior enlistment earns two.
The Utah National Guard is composed of the Utah Army National Guard and the Utah Air National Guard. The Army component traces its roots back to Mormon settlers who established a militia in 1849; it is currently headquartered in Draper and operates 30 armories. The Air component was established in 1946 with the 191st Fighter Squadron and is based in Salt Lake City; it currently numbers approximately 1,450 members.
The ribbon is white with three thin vertical red stripes toward each edge; it also features four blue stars in the center.
